Palestinians and Jewish Israelis clash in Jerusalem’s Old City near Damascus Gate. Pepper gas and flying chairs fill the air as some run shouting from the scene, clutching their eyes.

At least one of those spraying mace appears to be a Jew planning to participate later in the Flag March for Jerusalem Day.
